LEO CLUB PROGRAM
Leading for Life
Leo clubs provide young people with an opportunity for development and contribution – individually and collectively – as responsible members of their local, national and international communities.
We Bring Young People Together
Our Leo club provides youth volunteer opportunities that inspire and support leadership in young people ages 12 to 30 by giving them the chance to learn, grow and serve by participating in community service projects.
For Young People Who Care
Leo clubs are open to young people with good character who have an interest in serving their communities. Leo clubs are divided into two tracks: Alpha and Omega. The Elburn Leo Club is an Alpha Leo Club.
Alpha Leo Clubs are designed for youth between 12 and 18 years old. This track focuses on the individual and social development of teens and preteens.

Leo Club Board of Directors consists of the Leo club president, vice president, secretary, treasurer and three elected Leo club members. This group also executes the business of the club, including the authorization of all club expenses.
Leo Club Advisors
The success of a Leo club depends on positive involvement of Lions. Leo club advisors serve as mentors, motivators, counselors and role models.
LEO CLUB LEADERSHIP
The success of each Leo club depends on the dedication of its leaders. By accepting an officer position, youth have an opportunity to develop leadership qualities and skills. Leo club officers lead club membership development efforts and plan service activities.
Leo leaders should demonstrate integrity, possess the ability to communicate and inspire, and recognize the individual needs and interests of club members.
